CCS School Board Seeks Public Input on Superintendent Search
The Camden County Board of Education has hired the North Carolina School Boards Association (NCSBA) to help facilitate its search for the next superintendent of the Camden County Schools (CCS). To that end, the board is seeking direct input from interested members of the community and staff to help shape the search process and to assist in defining the qualities and characteristics desired in the next CCS superintendent.
The board invites parents and community members to participate in a short community survey that can be accessed and completed online by clicking the survey link on the main CCS webpage: https://ccsnc.org/. For members of the community without personal access to the internet, the Camden County Library System has computers with internet access available for public use. Paper copies of the survey also are available for completion and may be found in the Camden County Schools’ central office located at 174 North Highway 343 in Camden. All surveys must be completed by Wednesday, July 5, 2017, with results to be compiled, summarized, and presented by NCSBA at the regularly scheduled board meeting on Thursday, July 13, 2017.
In addition, all employees of CCS will have an opportunity to complete a separate online staff survey. Details about completing the employee version of the search survey will be communicated via school system e-mail.
Citizens also may sign up to address the board during the public comment period at any of the upcoming regularly scheduled board meetings, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on June 8 and July 13. Both meetings will be held in the media center at Camden County High School, located at 103 U.S. Highway 158 West in Camden. Citizens must sign up to speak before the meeting begins and must otherwise comply with applicable board policy.
In addition to input received from the surveys and public comment, local groups and organizations may submit written statements regarding the leadership qualities that they consider important in the next superintendent. Such statements should be submitted to Allison Schafer via mail at NCSBA, P.O. Box 97877, Raleigh, NC 27624, via e-mail at email@example.com, or via fax at 919-841-4020. These statements should be received no later than Wednesday, July 5, 2017.
